How to Change an Internship Into Full-Time Employment and a Career 

  • Working hard,
  • Taking notes in an employment portfolio,
  • Showing good appearance and manners,
  • Being productive and cooperative,
  • Showing initiative at the most appropriate times, and
  • Becoming more visible as a good employee —


These are behaviors that lead a student or adult intern from the internship to full-time employment – right?  Unfortunately, not always.

All these items can help make your internship experience good enough to lead to an off of a job that can be the foundation for a career offer, but this does not always the case. 

Some employers use government-subsidized interns during a few months each year and do not  hire them full-time after completion. Other internships turn out to be part-time temporary summer jobs.  However, America is home to employers that maintain well-developed, ongoing internship programs that do lead to full-time work. Access the link above for the list and some other good ideas.
